Low Highlight Film
There aren't a lot of highlights as it seems the persons operating the camera were impatient with their subjects, changing rapidly after only a few seconds. There is some funny footage of a large dog devouring what appears to be a large pork chop in a bowl of gravy train. The dog has perfected tipping the bowl to procure any and all liquids in may contain. There is Christmas footage, a small affair, mom, junior, Gramps, Ma, and dad presumably running the camera. Junior gets a nice pair of waxed skis and a cool left handed baseball glove. Mom and dad are both shown smoking, not at all unusual for the year, around 1953 or 54. The is some outdoor footage, possibly the Blue Ridge Mountains that is nice. A visit to the zoo has the usual suspects, most interesting being the Monkey riding a burro and being chastised by the owner. Only 2 stars for lack of creativity.
